The Healthy Skin Show
Summary: Fed up with those skin rashes that just won't go away? Join clinical nutritionist, skin rash expert, and eczema warrior Jennifer Fugo to explore alternative ways to look at your frustrating skin conditions. Together, we'll dive deep to empower and inspire you to see your symptoms from a totally different perspective. Each episode tackles a wide range of chronic skin rash issues including (but not limited to) eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, vitiligo, and seborrheic dermatitis. We pull back the curtain to dish on nutrition, diet, root causes, detoxification, lifestyle changes and even innovative published research that doesn't seem to trickle down to your doctor.
Rosacea is a skin condition best known for causing redness and flushing. But is can also lead to pustules and comedones. My guest today will share more about rosacea, as well as possible treatment options. My guest today is Dr. Peter Lio, a Clinical Assistant Professor of Dermatology & Pediatrics at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine.
If you’ve followed along for a while now, you know that hidden bugs can be one of the root causes driving your skin rashes. H. pylori is one of those bugs that is often overlooked! Yes, there is an H. pylori-Skin Rash connection. Though most of the symptoms associated with H. pylori are gut-related, it’s entirely possible to have no GI symptoms and test positive for this bug.
Mold can pop up in the most unlikely places, places we don't think to look. My guest today is here to talk all about finding dangerous black mold in your home, car, office, etc., and how to handle it. My guest today is Toréa Rodriguez. After completing her undergraduate degree in Biochemistry, Toréa has embodied transformation and self-discovery.
Have you ever heard of ozonated oil? Or maybe you’ve read about the benefits of ozonated olive oil for certain skin conditions? At first, I was skeptical so I decided to do my own research to find out if there was something special about adding ozone to plant oils. Turns out that some really cool research exists already on its antimicrobial capacity!
Many steroid (topical, oral, etc.) users are not given clear guidelines for how to safely use their steroid. This can lead to a condition called Topical Steroid Withdrawal Syndrome (TSW), which can severely impact the skin and overall health. My guest today, Kathryn Tullos is a Registered Nurse from Houston, Texas with a degree in Communications.
Have you ever felt like a failure after trying thing after thing for your skin -- yet nothing seems to help? Why does it help everyone else BUT you? It just doesn’t seem fair. The truth is -- there’s a lot that doesn’t feel fair on the journey to resolve chronic skin rashes. Especially when it seems like nothing is helping you. Before you throw in the towel assuming that you’re just doomed, let’s talk about mindset.
External and internal stressors can have a negative impact on the skin. My guest today will discuss how various stressors can lead to inflammation, which can lead to skin rash issues. My guest today, Brie Wieselman, is a digestive and hormonal health specialist who works with women around the world in her online practice. She also specializes in helping people with a range of digestive issues so that they can build a healthy microbiome.
If you’ve ever wondered if you have parasites because you have rashes, this episode is for you! I’ve had a number of clients over the past couple of months who believed that parasites were at the root of their skin rashes. This came from both eczema and psoriasis clients, by the way. So, where did they get this idea?
Many people with eczema have trouble sleeping restfully through the night because their skin becomes much more itchy. My guest today will offer some reasons why this may occur, and some tips to address sleep problems. My guest today, Christa Biegler, is host of the Less Stressed Life podcast and has an integrative nutrition private practice focusing on skin, digestive, autoimmune and allergy issues.
If you’re like me, the idea of using commercial disinfectants makes you cringe. As a follow up to last week’s article on handwashing, this was the next on my list of critical information that many of you have asked for. In the midst of there being a shortage of disinfectants at the grocery store, there are claims being made about certain products (like essential oils) that aren’t appropriate.
Many people aren't familiar with pityriasis rosea, and seeing the strange rash develop can be really alarming. My guest today will explain what it is, and why you shouldn't freak out if you have it. My guest today is Dr. Ingels, ND, FAAEM, a respected leader in natural medicine with more than 28 years experience in the healthcare field. He is Board certified in Integrated Pediatrics and a Fellow of the American Academy of Environmental Medicine.
The general consensus right now is that all of this hand washing (while needed) is triggering cracked, painful, dry hands. Anyone with rashes on their hands is especially stressed about the excessive hand washing. Look, I think we ALL get it. We have to wash our hands right now. But how do you handle all this hand washing while balancing your skin’s needs to stay moisturized?
Autoimmune skin conditions like scleroderma can progress rapidly. However, safe, well-researched diet and lifestyle changes could slow down the progression of the skin condition. My guest today is Dr. Terry Wahls, an Institute for Functional Medicine Certified Practitioner and a clinical professor of medicine at the University of Iowa, where she conducts clinical trials.
“Am I at greater risk of getting really sick from the Coronavirus because of the medication I’m taking?” It’s a good question. Especially because many people who suffer from severe skin rash conditions like atopic dermatitis and psoriasis may be on immunosuppressants or biologic medications. I’ve seen this question posed a number of times online and it’s something I wondered myself.
Anxiety can greatly affect a person's quality of life, but did you know it can also impact the health of the skin? My guest today is Dr. Sara DeFrancesco. Dr. DeFrancesco is a holistic, root cause Naturopathic Doctor, Licensed Acupuncturist, and the founder of Thriving Force – an investigative medicine clinic that specializes in digestive, immune, and brain health problems.
